    I ride most of my bikes with similar drop; I don't mind them a bit higher, but I don't enjoy riding with my bars level with the saddle. Too much difference to the race bike.

    The Tufo's test miserably bad in the rolling resistance tests. If you use 'em, don't race on them. It's probably worth 30 watts to swap to something good like a Vittoria Evo. Seriously. The tape...

    Yep.. I rode tubulars almost exclusively for a couple of years, bought some carbon 50s in a group buy here on BF, rode 'em everywhere.

    I still ride them on my TT bike exclusively. I normally...

    Velocals did a nice job on the decals. The pin stripes were a pain; I had a hard time getting the backing off without lifting the stripes themselves. I wasn't totally happy with my results but...

    I did about 40 miles on it today; rides beautifully! I did manage to shift the front ring down while trying to shift the rear during a sprint; the resulting "hamster wheel" made me think I'm not...

    You can do what I did for a friend.. start with a cheap heavy frame from the 70s, pick nearly any manufacturer. I took an old Ross frame that somebody left at the LBS, added a bunch of braze-ons,...

    I just converted a similar 24" wheeled frame (a drop bar frame) into a fixed gear for my wife. I put 650c wheels on it and they fit beautifully with a 23c tire.
